We’re on an adventure
Discover God’s purpose for us through serving! God has created each one of us to serve Him and when we do, we grow closer to Him, find joy in serving Christ, and make a difference in others’ lives.
At Bridges there are three ways to to utilize the gifts and talents God gave you.
When we ask God to be our Savior He calls us to serve Him by serving others. He gifts us with abilities to meet the needs of others in a manner that is pleasing to Him and will fill us with joy.
We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.
Where Should I Serve?
God calls us to serve each other within the body of Christ. We are to take care of the needs of people at our church in order to strengthen them for service. Visit the Impact our Church page to learn more about opportunities at Bridges.
1 Corinthians 12:12
The body is a unit, though it is made up of may parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ.
I Corinthians 12:18-20
But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body.
When you read the word “body” you may picture a human body, but in the Bible God is talking about the body as a group of people. The group of people He is referring to are believers and followers of Jesus Christ.
The word “part” refers to us indvidually and our role as servants to Christ’s call for us to love God and love others (Matthew 22:37-39).
How Much Should I Serve?
As we meet the needs of those in our church body and study God’s word, a natural outflow of God’s Spirit will encourage us to carry that act of service into our community and around the world. We will naturally begin to want to serve more time and in more ways. There isn’t a magic number to filling our call to serve; we simply act on God’s nudges to explore His purpose for our life.
